Ratings for Dr. Nerissa Safie
I had a swollen lump form under my pregnant belly and she refused to even touch it or look at it. I paid a hospital copay for nothing and I had to go to another doctor to get it diagnosed. Then I was unfortunate to have her deliver me. She was in the hospital building already, she knew my epidural didn't work and I was in pain, but she took 20 minutes to come to deliver and casually walked in and made a joke as I was begging and crying for help. I don't ever want to see her again. She didn't care about me at all.
Dr. Safie was wonderful. Her staff was polite and actually listened. I had a very short wait in the lobby and an even shorter wait in the room. Dr. Safie was very knowledgeable and friendly. She immediately put me at ease that my regular physician had misread my prior pap results. Evernything about my appointment was easy and reassuring. I won't be going anywhere else.
I met Safi on a emergency basis when my water broke at 18 weeks...she herself was wonderful in the hospital and I only ran into issues when the Mortuary I used to have my baby cremated could NEVER get an answer or call back from her office! what the hell??! this is a a most difficult time for my family and I and to have to wait so long to have a simple phone call returned and letter faxed is UNACCEPTABLE. the doctor may be fantastic but the staff is ALWAYS the first impression and really makes the practice's rep. so disappointing.
I saw Safie for my first pregnancy. She came highly recommended by a friend. She seemed nice at first. For the most part, she was pleasant for all visits except when I wanted to talk about my birth plan. She doesn't really agree with the Bradley Method. She was 20+ minutes late every appt I had with her, and that was in addition to waiting 30+ minutes in the waiting room. I felt like I was rushed each visit. She would answer all of my questions, but some literally as she was walking out the door going to the next patients room. Sure didn't make me feel important. :( She was not there for my delivery, even though she was on call then left to go to Vegas, per the hospital staff. I was bummed. I called her nurse because I had mastitis, didn't know it at the time, and her or the nurse wouldn't return my calls! What! I'm in pain and no one will talk to me?! When Safie called I told her my symptoms and she replied with "What do you expect me to do about it?" I hung up. Do not recommend.
I am 36 weeks pregnant and have had Dr. Safie for most of this pregnancy. I had a rough start in the pregnancy and she was very helpful. She takes her time and listens carefully. Also, she errs on the side of safety and I really appreciate her. So far so good with Dr. Safie. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Safie is the most amazing woman and doctor ever! She delivered my last 2 children ( I have 3 ) and I would see NO ONE ELSE after that! She has been my doctor for 6 years and 4 months almost to the day. I had a problematic pregnancy with my 2nd and she was kind enough to reassure me and even made sure she'd deliver me. I had c-sections, and she did such an amazing job, my scar is almost non-existant, and my recovery's were smooth. After delivery, my blood pressure whacked out, and once again, Dr. Safie came to my rescue! She's in it for the patients, and the joy, not the money. Therefore she has the right attitude. I can NOT SAY ENOUGH WONDERFUL things about her, and wish her great success. I'm so glad she left Crown, as the staff was rude and intolerable. Had Dr. Safie not have been affiliated, I would of left crown and filed a complaint against them! Love Dr. Safie!
Dr. Safie is the best Doctor any woman could ask for. I do feel that the front office staff hare to tolerate and do they do not care about a pregnant woman’s emotions and are completely rude and unwilling to help. I just learned that Dr. Safie is leaving Crown Medical Group, but I am not sure were she is going. If anyone knows please let me know.
